BERLIN-Diggerland, a construction themed amusement adventure park, will soon be making its way across the pond and into New Jersey.
Diggerland, with four parks in England, is being touted by partner, Sahara Sam’s Oasis as the first of its kind in the United States.
According to Diggerland’s UK blog, a team from Sahara Sam’s Oasis visited their park in June of 2011.
“We had some visitors pop over from across the pond to visit [Diggerland] and find out more about us.” the company said. ”The guys who had come from New Jersey, had a look around to see how we do things, and what Diggerland is all about.”
At the November 26th Berlin Township zoning board meeting the board granted a preliminary final major site plan with variances, paving the way for the project to begin.
The name of the park will be Diggerland Adventure Park and will be located at Cooper Road, Pinedge Drive and Pinedge Court, Block 2601, Lot 1 & 5.
The company posted a job opportunity for a park manager on the International Association of Amusement Park’s job search database on December 23rd.
On Tuesday, January 14th, Sahara Sam’s Oasis will officially unveil the the project to the news media. Local and state level officials are expected to be on hand.
